Welcome back to the real world, friends. I hope you all had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. I skipped out a bit early to head to Connecticut for the long weekend and I’m sure glad I did. The sun was shining, the water was wonderful and the company wasn’t too bad either.
First and foremost, I MUST inform you all about one of the most underrated mobile ‘destinations’ in Stamford. The Brunch Box. At the corner of Atlantic & Tresser, this is a breakfast-to-go you won’t want to miss. Of course, I tried the bacon, egg & cheese on a portuguese bun. Out of this world. Also known for homemade granola and out of this world pierogis. I cannot recommend enough!!
Another recommendation I must add is Lorca. I initially stumbled on this gem on a hot day looking for something to quench my thirst but everything I’ve tried is beyond impressive. The London Fog Tea Latte (over ice on a hot day) is incredible and if you’re in the mood for a nibble, try the quiche of the day. There’s even a few baked goods if you have a sweet tooth.
Over the weekend we took a quick trip into the city, strolled through Central Park
Stopped for a drink at Sarabeth’s
and ventured over to Williamsburg for Smorgasburg (GO!) for dinner. I had the greatest fresh fruit ice pop from people’s pops before we headed over to the Whythe Hotel rooftop for drinks… and a view.
Though I have a love for the city, I was happy to spend a lot of time outside on the water or by the pool.
We even squeezed in a little time to kayak, which I took the liberty of calling my ‘workout’ for the weekend. Hey, it’s technically vacation, right?
My own personal mixologist whipped up a few cocktails which were thoroughly enjoyed by the fire overlooking the water. I also whipped up some homemade guacamole which I’ll be sharing the recipe later this week.
Date night post water taxi.
As all great things do, the weekend had to roll to an end and off to the airport I went.
I hope during your weekend you took some time to think about the men & women who have sacrificed so much to keep our beautiful country free.
PS. HOW ABOUT THOSE CAVS!? #CLEVELAND!!!!!
